On December 8, 2008, the Harris County Republican Party Executive Committee voted unanimously to oppose taxpayer subsidies for a new soccer stadium for the Houston Dynamo.
The complete text of the resolution is included below for your review; however, it is critical that Harris County Republicans make their voices heard and oppose this $20 million corporate welfare program.
I encourage my fellow Republicans to contact members of Harris County Commissioners Court as well as members of Houston City Council and oppose public funding of the Dynamo soccer stadium.
For those wishing to address Harris County Commissioners Court on this issue, you may sign up to speak at the next meeting scheduled for Tuesday, January 13th by going to:
